    This is one of my red capensis that came up as a weed with my U. sandersonii. They do revert to looking more like a typical when not in strong sunlight, but the typicals never achieve that strong red colour under the same conditions. As you can see the entire plant goes red not just the hairs and digestive glands.

    Here are a couple of links to the red D. capensis under proper light intensity.

    Thanks again, Bob! My capensis most closely resembles the picture provided from yesterday - green stems and red tentacles. Indymental has one that is red from the stems on up.

    I enjoy growing both the red variety and one I received from the seedbank as 'wide leaf' (has a wide leaf with a light green color) side-by-side. The differences between the 2 almost are striking.

    Sadly, I realized after looking through my pics, that I do not have a photo showing both of them.

    Here's a pic of some strikes of my red plant:

    Kinda odd that the little guys don't show much red yet...

    By "strikes" I assume you mean vegetative propagation rather than seed. If so, it will probably take a bit of time in intense light for the little guys to become red. If they are clones, they will certainly be red in time.

    Hey, that's exactly the coloration I have. Geez, your collection looks like mine - filiformis, binata, primuliflora(?). Can't tell what the top left is, though.

    The plant in question is sending up a flower stalk. It's sitting next to the Albino form, but that isn't doing the same. Wonder what a cross would do if I could time things right.
